The best hotel in the downtown area around the convention center, had a wonderful view from the 17th floor. I a chance to see the eclipse from my room as well . They have the best elevator system that all hotels need to adopt .

Room Tip: My thing is always stay above the 4th floor

I stayed here for three nights while attending a conference. The location was close to the convention center which made for an easy walk. As others have said the hotel has two buildings and unfortunately I was put in the one across the street. The building is old and could probably use some updates. The rooms were decorated fine but due to size there were 2 double beds instead of Queen beds. The beds was comfortable and there was great water pressure in the shower.

The service in the restaurants in the main lobby was very slow. The breakfast buffet was good but it took forever to get our check both mornings. I also ate in the bar area and it took 35 minutes to get a flat bread pizza which was ridiculous. I smartly asked for the check immediately when the pizza finally came.

I would stay here again but I would shop around first to see what else was available.

Thank you for taking the time to send your comments. We are pleased that you liked the location of our hotel and that you found it convenient to the Convention Center. We do operate our hotel with two towers. We have started our guest room renovation in the East Tower. Once that tower is completed we will start in the Marriott West tower. All of the furniture and the decor will be changing. The bathrooms and closets will be remodeled as well as many more upgrades to the rooms. Our double beds are also being replaced with queen size beds. We are very excited for the new look our guest room will have. We do have a few floors that have been completed and we hopefully will be completed within the next year. I would like to apologize for the inconveniences you experienced with the delay in service in the outlets. I have shared your comments with our hotel team. I do hope that you will choose to stay at our hotel again if your travels bring you back to the Kansas City area.

I had read on here that some of this Marriot's rooms were updated and some were not. I was able to get one of the updated rooms and I'm glad we did. The beds were great, the decor was new and nice. We were in the Mulebach tower. It was slightly confusing to get there, but we figured it out. We stayed on the 15th floor, room 1506.

The hotel is within a few blocks of the convention center and the Power and Light district (dining and entertainment). They have made some updates to the hotel, such as the efficient elevator system (you select which floor you are going to and it tells you which elevator to get into...there are no buttons inside the elevator), but the hotel could still use some updates. The light fixtures in my bathroom were rusted and the paint was cracked on the back of the bathroom door. The room was quiet and very comfortable. It had a couch and chair with an ottoman. It was great for relaxing after returning from working at the convention center.

Check-in process was fairly easy especially for the size of the crowd, bellman was courteous and helpful, room was clean and in order. room location was in the older building but it was well maintained, our window view was not appealing. The small shops and restaurant offerings were pleasant and offered variety. Ammenities were the customary. Check-out was fairly easy except that we left early in the morning and bellman service was not yet available.

Room Tip: older building closer to the Convention Center and Arena, walk from newer building was not conducive for someone with health issues.
